Posted: 14 Jul 2012 07:33 AM PDT

It was revealed that 2AM‘s Jo Kwon accidentally signed a marriage certificate.

On the July 15th’s airing of Y-STAR‘s ‘Curiosity‘, it was revealed that Jo Kwon signed a marriage certificate that a female fan gave him to autograph.

On this day’s broadcast, a female, who revealed herself to be Jo Kwon’s fan, surprised viewers when she showed a marriage certificate that had Jo Kwon’s signature on it.

This happened back in 2009 when 2AM was promoting “Confession of a Friend” and this fan always brought the marriage certificate around with her to get Jo Kwon to sign it.

She said, “I wanted to marry Jo Kwon so I got his signature when he was distracted because of the chaotic atmosphere of the fan signing event.

After the production crew looked into this issue, it was discovered that a marriage certificate done in such a manner is not valid.

"All of us have been through so much. That's why I want to be with them for as long as possible," says Eunjung, "Most of us get very lonely as we don't get to see our family all that often, so we depend on each other to cheer each other up."

"We're more like family now," continues Eunjung, "We're sisters. If a member were to come up to me and say ‘Someone said something bad about me’ or ‘This person hurt me,’ I wouldn’t think twice about getting up and doing something about it.”

Brown Eyed Girls’ Miryo sheds tears after a regretful performance on ‘Show Me the Money’

Posted: 13 Jul 2012 09:58 PM PDT

Brown Eyed GirlsMiryo shed tears after putting on a performance she was greatly disappointed with on the latest episode of ‘Show Me the Money‘.

On the July 13th broadcast of Mnet‘s new hip hop program, Miryo was paired up with hopeful rap contestant Iltong (Seo Sung Jo) and prepared their arrangement of Park Jung Woon‘s “If It’s Like Tonight“.

But once Miryo took to the stage in front of the large audience, the rapper suddenly blanked out in the first few seconds of the performance, forgetting the lyrics and beginning to rap in freestyle. Miryo eventually stopped and apologized to the crowd before restarting the performance.

While her second attempt went smoothly, Iltong fumbled the lyrics to a portion of his rap. After the performance, Iltong stated in the interview, “After Miryo made a mistake, my mind just went blank. I think I was extremely nervous.”

Upon seeing their score, Miryo blamed herself and said, “I’m terribly sorry. I feel like it’s all my fault. I thought I’d be able to put up a great performance, but my mind just went blank.

The rapper then burst into tears back at the waiting room and expressed her disappointment stating, “I was so nervous that my mind went into panic mode. Everything was fine until I began forgetting the lyrics during the rehearsal. I couldn’t continue like that so I stopped during the middle of the performance, but I know I shouldn’t have done that. I only thought about myself which led me to make that mistake.”

Fans have been asking questions as well as speculating with comments like, “What are they doing together?” “Are they working on a drama together?” “They look good together”, and “I almost misunderstood the situation at first, but it seems like they’re in the middle of filming.”
